administration. it's want his fault. well, now it is his fault. >> in 2009 just after president obama was inaugurated, we also spent time in king county, and we met charlotte macaulay who told us -- >> i just asked god that he would help him truly connect with him so that he would know what god's heart was for the united states of america. >> and this is charlotte today at the women's club meeting. >> you told us four years ago that you hoped the lord would help barack obama. >> yes. >> do you think that happened? >> it doesn't appear so. >> and then there was something -- >> all right. that's very interesting, the whole aspect of that. very fascinating story. have they ever given a democrat a chance there in terms of voting in support, or is this something that is specific to president obama? >> well, this is really interesting. in king county even today there are more registered democrats than republicans, but a democrat in rural texas is a lot different than a democrat in new york, los angeles, chicago, or even dallas, houston, or san antonio. back in 1968, back in 1968, hubert hum
and months, it just doesn't wash, because if they knew all about this, why would the obama administration put general allen's name up for nomination, release a statement praising his service, schedule all these hearings, fly him here from afghanistan, only to have all this fall apart at the last minute. if they knew all these details, it just doesn't make a lot of sense. >> and why are they searching her home if, in fact, it's just about a sexual relationship between biographer and her subject. all right, chris lawrence, thank you. general john allen, of course, denying any wrongdoing as we've mentioned. nick paton walsh was recently on the ground with the troops in afghanistan. he's in beirut for us this morning. tell me a little bit about general john allen. i think that there's so many things that are so complicated about this story. so give us some insight into who he is and how he treats certainly the folks who, who served with him. >> very much respected career soldier. he became the head of u.s. forces in the nato campaign in afghanistan. a man with acute understanding of the problems
of the differences between the bush administration and the obama administration is that we believed, and a big many of us continue to believe, that this is a long war not against al qaeda. al qaeda is one manifestation but against a particular ideology. so our national security goals were, one, keep america safe, too, help promote freedom around the world. and those two things are linked because we believe they were linked. free countries are less likely to make were on their neighbors. so i think that to me the grand strategic goal of public diplomacy is the same as the grand strategic goal of foreign policy and national security policy, which is to achieve those two goals. and i think you never ever want to forget that those are the goals that need to be achieved. and public diplomacy's role in that i think does, in fact, revolve around the ideological part. and it is, not to quote myself, i hate to do that, but i can't say it any better. [laughter] >> a great man once said. >> the aim must be to ensure that negative sentiments and day-to-day grievances toward the united states and its allies did
program, the graham questioning why the obama administration sent out ambassador rice to handle the after the attack in the first place. >> i can't believe the president sent something out to talk about benghazi that that had nothing to do with benghazi. why did they pick her? she is not in charge of consulate security. she works in the u.n. why nobody from the state department? i believe she is a close political ally on the president. she went on national tv four or five days after the attack when there is no credible information that the video scenario was real. and she either through incompetence or an intentional effort to mislead the american people tried to spin a story that would help the president. gregg: pretty stunning charge. as we mentioned, senator graham joining senators john mccain, kelly ayotte calling for a watergate-style joint committee of congress to investigate the attack. later on "america's newsroom", reaction from a big critic of the president on libya, georgia senator john any isakson will join us. martha: as we mentioned the house foreign affairs committee on ben
months ago saying after george mitchell, the obama administration's special envoy for israeli/palestinian peace negotiations, after he ended his tour without any success at all. that's been more than a year ago. maybe a year and a half or so ago. i said they need -- really, they need someone who's got clout with the israelis. who's got clout with the palestinians in the arab world. i thought bill clinton, especially with his wife leaving as secretary of state, maybe that would be a good assignment for him. he's taken on other assignments like haiti relief, for example, the tsunami. i know he got -- the final months of his presidency to a deal between the israelis and the palestinians. i think mccain may be on to something. i don't know if bill clinton would want to do it. i've asked him that question in an interview i did with him a few months back. he didn't say no. he didn't say yes. but i think they need someone of that caliber to -- assuming that they achieve a cease-fire and that there's no great guarantee that they will, let's say they do, they need to follow up quickly
to 100 republic lawmakers have written to president obama saying the administration's response to the attack makes now u.n. ambassador unfit for a promotion. it comes after word got out that the white house is considering nominating her to replace secretary of state hillary clinton. just days after the deadly attack in libya. ambassador rice went on the five sunday talk shows and described it as spontaneous protest over that video that insulted islam. u.s. officials now say it was actually a planned tear attack. the now former cia director david petraeus reportedly told congress the administration knew right away it was a terror attack. but according to those who heard the closed door testimony last week j jen petraeus claims the administration changed official story to remove references to terrorism. as to who changed it, that's unclear. lawmakers from both political parties say they are working to figure that out. some republicans point the finger at the white house accusing the administration of a coverup though at this point we have no evidence of that. the white house says
mccain that they are not going to cooperate with the second administration of barack obama, that they are going to stall out all of his nominations. this is their warning shot that they are going to filibuster her appointment and perhaps anybody else's. i think that's what it is. and here is the intelligence committee member. >> again, i'm really confused. the only point in contention really is whether or not this attack emerged from a protest and as soon as the information became clearer and it did take some time for that to happen, then that was perfectly clarified. there is absolutely -- it's inconceivable to me for anybody to speculate there would be a deliberate misleading of the american people. why would there be? it's perfectly inconsequential al. there was a spontaneous demonstration and the terrorist groups organized to take opportunistic advantage of it or not. in any case, there is no advantage to mislead the american people in that regard. i mean you have to have motivation behind it and there is none. and as soon as the intelligence became clearer and as a mem
ambassador rice and the administration politicized those talking points. >> she went beyond that and she even mentioned that under the leadership of barak obama, we have decimated al-qaeda. she knew at that point in time that al-qaeda was very likely responsible in part or in whole for the death of ambassador stevens. >> i really think ambassador rice has been treated unfairly. >> congressional source told fox news that rice had access to unclassified and classified information and could is easily learned that by september 14, f.b.i. agents had determined there was no protest at that consulate based on interviews with the diplomatic security agents. >> of course, we'll stay on this story as it continues to unfold. katherine, thank you very much. a warning tonight from the terrorist organization hamas. the message? no place in israel is safe. the militants say they're making that point clear by launching rockets at jerusalem in tel aviv. nobody reported hurt in those attacks and the rocket hamas fired at jerusalem actually landed outside the city. it's the first time a palestinian rocket has h
and conservative thinktank experts offered their assessment of the administration's actions on ben ghazi. the attack killed four americans, including the u.s. ambassador chris stevens. yesterday, president obama intensely defended u.n. ambassador susan rice who was under fire for saying the attack was a protest gone out of control, rather that a terrorist incident. today, democrats and republicans went after each other for trying to politicize ben ghazi. >> what is clear is that this administration, including the president himself, has intentionally misinformed, lied to the american people in the aftermath of the tragedy. >> if you want an honest investigation of this tragedy, we will join you. but if you want to persist in trying somehow to put this, lay this at the doorstep of the president or the secretary of state or the united nations ambassador, you will find us ready and willing photoresist to the teeth. -- willing to resist to the teeth. >> reporter: david petraeus was a concern among some committee members today who want to know exactly what is in the report compiled by petraeus
about it, the only reason we didn't have immigration reform during the bush administration is because two gentlemen, rahm emanuel in the house and barack obama in the senate decided to vote for an amendment to the immigration bills that actually help the union. they were backed by the unions, and they decided that they would poison the well by voting for those amendments that killed immigration reform. nobody talks about that in the immediate, but it was liberal labor unions and those barack obama in the senate who decided to poison the well. he did it again this time, and i think as republicans we have to be smarter than we have been on this issue in the past. we have to look past the easy of the other side and find a rational solution to immigrati immigration. >> i find common ground with that analysis, raul, and i think also that marco rubio has done a very good job of articulating some of the things that emerged from this white house, and not, not, i don't know that you can, you can make a very strong case that republicans have been hostile on this dialog so much as it has been th
